Total solar eclipse 2021: When, where and how to see it on Dec. 4

The only total solar eclipse of the year takes place on Saturday (Dec. 4), and if you live in the far south of the world you may be able to catch a glimpse. Alternatively, there might be a livestream available if the Antarctic weather holds.

Solar eclipses happen when the new moon passes in front of the face of the sun, from Earth’s perspective. (Never look at the sun directly with your eyes; instead, follow the safety guide we have later in this article to help you.)
